Mastering the Moment

IMG_6464

M.Power’s 6 foundations each speak to me in a different way. The one that resonates with me the most is ‘Mastery of the Moment’.

In the past I used to find myself in a routine of always multi taking and not being fully present. My “to do list” seemed never ending and I would constantly think about what was on it, no matter where I was. I was missing out on genuine connections and conversations because my mind was in 5 different places at once.

Posture Clinic: Triangle

Elizabeth triangle

Pregnancy can take a toll on women’s core and this can cause diastasis recti or separation of the abdominal muscles. One way to help prevent this and/or repair it is by strengthening the transverse abdominals, the deep core muscles that hold everything in like a belt. Throughout my pregnancy and post-partum my favorite ways to strengthen my core is in triangle pose or trikonasana.  Continue reading »

Mindful Movement

IMG_5632

One of the things that drew me to M.Power is their commitment to the foundations that built the essence of the studio. Without a foundation it’s hard to build a home.   M.Power feels like a home away from home. While each foundation is important, one that resonated with me was Mindful Movement. Mindful Movement can mean many things from the physical to community. Continue reading »

Making Meaningful Connections.

IMG_3617

I remember the first time I did crow pose. Nature Kids Summer Camp. What a glorious moment for 11 year old me! Until, I went for round two, and fell right on my face. This was my first yoga memory. At that time, I didn’t know it as “yoga,” and certainly not as I know yoga today. From that one meaningful connection, and then the countless others that followed it, I’ve found a lifelong practice. Now, I could not imagine my life without my yoga practice and my yoga community. Continue reading »

By LA Finfinger

The first time that I practiced a heated vinyasa yoga class, I swore I’d never be back. Class was in a hot, sold-out room and I felt defeated almost the entire time. I couldn’t keep up with the teacher and for the most part the only poses I knew were child’s pose, warrior one, and warrior two. Continue reading »
